Britney Spears may be trying to extend an olive branch to her sons amid their ongoing feud.
The “Toxic” singer, 41, took to Instagram Monday to share a throwback photo of her eldest, Sean Preston, captioning it, “My first love !!”
In the snap, the now 17-year-old can be seen flashing a smile while posing in a white button-down shirt.
Her most recent post comes just two days after she posted a similar tribute to her youngest, Jayden.
Over the weekend, the singer — who shares both sons with ex Kevin Federline — shared a snap where she held the then-toddler on her hip while walking through a park.

Spears’ tributes come a few weeks after it was revealed that the teens are planning to move to Hawaii with their father to escape scrutiny in Hollywood.
According to TMZ, the move was prompted after their stepmother, Victoria Prince, received a job offer that forces her to relocate.The pop star hasn’t seen her sons in “over a year” amid their public feud.FameFlynet / BACKGRID
He also slammed Federline, 45, and his attorney for making the dispute public, calling it “undignified, ungracious and unnecessary.”
Many of Spears’ diehard fans are also taking issue with Federline’s plans to move his sons to Hawaii, claiming the former dancer is trying to get even more money out of his ex-wife.

“He’s doing this because the courts can force her to pay child support up to the age of 23 in Hawaii,” one Twitter user suggested, while another echoed, “Kevin desperately wanting to move to Hawaii is definitely child support related.”
“Kevin Federline gets sued for not paying for the education of his kids and then decides to move to Hawaii where he can apply to get child support until Britney’s boys are 23,” one observant critic pointed out. “It is painfully obvious Britney is still trapped and will be as long as so many people depend on her $$$.”She was married to Kevin Federline from 2004 to 2007.

Spears previously paid Federline $20,000 a month in child support, but he demanded an increase in May 2018. While it’s unclear what number the exes agreed upon, Federline is likely to lose that check next year once Sean Preston turns 18.
Spears and Federline tied the knot in October 2004. However, they called it quits three years later.
He is also dad to four other children: daughters Jordan, 11, and Peyton, 9, whom he shares with Prince, and daughter Kori, 20, and son Kaleb, 18, whom he shares with ex-fiancée Shar Jackson.
